Role of the School Nurse
“School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success, and life-long achievement of students. To that end, school nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety; intervene with actual and potential health problems; provide case management services; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management, self-advocacy, and learning.” 

This definition was adopted at the NASN Board of Directors meeting in Providence, Rhode Island.

Positive Steps
Aliquippa School District, in cooperation with Western Pennsylvania Psych Care, is continuing to offer counseling services through the Positive Steps Wellness Center at Aliquippa Elementary School and Jr/Sr High School, which can include:
  • Individual therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Group Therapy
No therapy will be conducted without written parental/guardian permission (unless a child is 14 or older – then they can self-refer). Services can cover a wide variety of problems, from diagnosed disorders (such as ADHD, depression, or anxiety) to temporary or situational problems (such as bullying, separation anxiety, divorce/grief counseling, or acting out in class). The service can be school, family, or even self-referred. If interested, please complete the referral form (Quip Parent Packet) and return it to the school offices. A therapist will then contact you to schedule a formal intake.
If you would like more information or have additional questions, please contact Will Forbes at (724) 857-7500 ext. 2278.
